I don’t believe that tomorrow will be the end of the world. But some people do – namely Robert Fitzpatrick from Staten Island, NY. He spent his life savings of $140,000 on bus and subway advertisements to warn us that we will have a global earthquake that will end the world on May 21, 2011.
I don’t buy it.
But let’s just say that tomorrow was really the last day of the world (which it’s not)…what would you do or say today?
If you’re a list maker – examine your life list. Are you really THAT upset that you haven’t gone sky diving? What about if you never made up with your estranged sibling? Would that matter?
What could you accomplish in the 24 hours you had left? Would you finish reading the book you just started? Fly home to be with your family? Cook dinner for your best friend? Volunteer your last hours?
I know what I would do…first I’d freak out a little. Then after composing myself – I’d make a list (seriously) – and call everyone who mattered to me. Tell them just how much they mean to me and how I couldn’t ever have become the person I am today without them.
I’m talking…teachers, friends, family members, etc. But why wait until you think the world is ending? Why not make those types of calls today? What would be on your to-do list if tomorrow was the last day of the world?
